i work in the mall in NC and my employer, also the owner of the store, watches us through the cameras that are in the store from his house. he apparently can pull them up on the internet or something and watch us live?? he will sometimes call the store and ask questions like "why has this person been in the back for so long?" or "i see yall haven’t been busy since you’re just standing around behind the counter". i find this very creepy and strange and kind of an invasion of my personal space.
is this legal?? if not, what are the reason behind this? if somebody feels the need to waste their time watching their employees during the day, why don’t they just go to the store and work themselves?
